Climb the tree to be taller than the tree

Easily missed at first glance, the photograph shows that the artist has free-climbed to the top of a large conifer tree, positioning himself above the topmost branches.

A 16mm film loop of the same title – transferred from the original Super 8 footage – provides a firsthand, forearm view of the climb.

Photographic assistance by Odette England.

Specifications: C-print on aluminium. 16mm film loop.
Dimensions 28.5cm x 23cm. Film duration approximately 3 minutes.
